Thanks Nootaree for the kind words, It was the first time that I hosted without being in the city. And thanks for letting me know that it wasn't clear for you if the fruits were for your use. I will improve as you suggested for the next guests. The food was for you, in order to have something to eat on the day of arrival till you have time to go to supermarket. Hope I can host you again and get to know you.

Durval was an amazing host! Not only was it my first time in Brazil but I use a wheelchair so I needed extra guidance from a local and Durval went above and beyond to help me! His apartment was adorable and spotless. Thanks to him, we had an amazing trip!
